Baby blue

Hello lovely bloggers,

Here is a quick card I made for following the sketch. 
No stamping, lots of 3D stuff and lots of sticking. The little rectangles have been punched out of wall paper. Yes, I used to buy rolls of wall paper at discounted prices  when we used to live in London for my cards.
I hope the pink bow is permitted for baby boy card. But then the world has changed a lot now. Men wear pinks and magentas like nobody's business :-) and I am happy about that. 
The little horsey and baby sentiment were picked up at a very lovely craft store in Jakarta.
The ribbon was sent to me by dear Lynn and the buttons are from my stash. Quite happy with my button supply - seem to have almost every colour I am looking for.

Below is the sketch at - apologies that I did not take a good picture.

This card took me all of 10 minutes to make - how cool is that!

I will also enter it in:
